2 Kings 17:18-23


17:18 So the Lord was furious 1  with Israel and rejected them; 2  only the tribe of Judah was left. 17:19 Judah also failed to keep the commandments of the Lord their God; they followed Israel’s example. 3  17:20 So the Lord rejected all of Israel’s descendants; he humiliated 4  them and handed them over to robbers, until he had thrown them from his presence. 17:21 He tore Israel away from David’s dynasty, and Jeroboam son of Nebat became their king. 5  Jeroboam drove Israel away 6  from the Lord and encouraged them to commit a serious sin. 7  17:22 The Israelites followed in the sinful ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat and did not repudiate 8  them. 17:23 Finally 9  the Lord rejected Israel 10  just as he had warned he would do 11  through all his servants the prophets. Israel was deported from its land to Assyria and remains there to this very day.
